Thread Name: Stephen Calt's biography of Skip James
Subject: Stephen Calt's biography of Skip James
Only recently I've got into the singing and guitar playing of Skip James.

Naturally I started looking for a biography of this amazing artist.

Stephen Calt's biography is universally acknowledged as the best researched.

However many of the people who have read and reviewed it on Amazon, describe Calt as a spiteful, malicious man with no good word to say for anyone.
Has anyone read this book and formed an opinion?
